If there is fluid leaking from it in the engine bay in front of your tranny, its bad, also check the master cylinder on the floor board conecting your clutch pedal they can both leak brake fluid. Both are very easy to replace.

This is a far reaching question that needs more clarification. There are cylinders where the pistons are located. If you have a clutch then you have a clutch master and slave cylinder. On the brakes you have a master cylinder and wheel cylinders. And the beat goes on. You need to distinguish as to which cylinder you are referring.

If the clutch stays on the floor after you push in the clutch first check to see if you have clutch fluid in the reservoir, if you do then it could just be because the clutch needs bled. If that doesn't do it then maybe your slave cylinder needs bled or replaced. From what I have seen it is generally because the slave cylinder needs replaced. Not to confuse you but the things that make up your clutch system are the clutch master cylinder, the slave cylinder, and the clutch dampner. If it is because the clutch needs bled start with the clutch master cylinder then do the slave cylinder. If it is not because of lack of fluid then check up under the dash and see if the spring on the clutch pedal is attached. Hope that doesn't sound to confusing.

Hydraulic clutch on that model is not ajustable. You either have a bad clutch slave cylinder, Or the clutch and pressure plate needs replaced.

User Avatar

It's a self adjusting hydraulic clutch. If it needs adjustment, it's probably either a bad clutch or a faulty clutch master or slave cylinder.

Slave cylinder needs to be replaced.it leaks

seal has gone on slave cylinder, it needs replacing.

User Avatar

it dont need oil unless your taking the whole clutch out and replace it. fluid

The clutch has two main parts; the master clutch cylinder and the slave cylinder. Follow the line down from the master cylinder to find the slave. Most of the time the slave needs to be rekitted or replaced and then bled. That should fix it.

User Avatar

The clutch IS supposed to go to the floor. Do you mean why doesn't it release the transmission from the engine. It probably needs to have air bled from the master cylinder and the slave cylinder.

If the answer refers to "it's not engaging completely to shift" it could be: * not enough clutch fluid * slave cylinder clutch, damaged and needs bleeding/repair/replacement * master cylinder clutch, damaged and needs bleeding/repair/replacement First check for fluid, if enough, then bleed the circuit changing to new fluid. If looking at the cylinders, any of them is leaking, it needs repair, repair kits are found at NAPA (USA). it's cheaper than replacement, but if the cylinder is damaged it will leak again soon. Some air in the circuit is enough for not letting the clutch work fully, and with the time the fluid will get water from ambient and that water will evaporate (with heat) creating air pockets. If the answer refer to "side pedal play" you need to remove the pedal clutch assembly to replace the bushings

This is a quick release and needs a clutch coupling removal tube T88T-70522-A or equivalent. Slide the sleeve toward the slave cylinder while pulling the tube away from the slave cylinder.

In all honesty, it sounds like your car needs a clutch replacement. If the car has high miles or has been driven hard, replace the clutch.

It varies with what area of the country you live in. Call a couple of local garages for estimates. Are you sure it needs to be replaced? I have a 1995 Ranger and the slave cylinder leaked until I was left with no clutch movement. I refilled the reservoir and bled the slave cylinder until the fluid ran clear. At first, the fluid was black, but after a while the fluid cleared up and I never did have to replace the slave cylinder. Try bleeding the cylinder first, and see if that fixes the problem.

My 91 did the same thing and continued to get worst to point where you can't even get it in gear now with the engine running. If you try to start it in gear the car starts to move. Two things, clutch needs adjusting or as in my case the clutch slave cylinder is worn out. Is the clutch pedal real mushy? That wouuld indicate the slave cylinder is bad. It is located on the driver side firewall and looks like a small brake cylinder.

User Avatar

sounds like your slave cylinder is bad or your clutch, find your clutch fluid reservoir and see if its full ,if not look for a leak if there is a leak most likely that's the problem and needs replacing.

User Avatar

go to your transmission and look at your slave cylinder,its coming thru the rubber cover,see if itsleakingif every thing checks out,then u might need a new clutch. ,if it is ,then it needs to be replaced, about 20.00 bucks,also check your clutch master cylinder for leaks and see if its empty.if nothing is leaking ,then your clutch might need replacing.

User Avatar

it means you have no clutch fluid(brake fluid) or that you possibly have a leak in the line somewhere or that it needs to be bled.might possibly be the master or slave cylinder.first check the clutch fluid resivor.if its empty then you need to top it off and bleed the line @ the master cylinder then at the slave cylinder.then find out why you have no fluid...the clutch fluid resivor is the smaller one of the two,check inside the car for a leak too,follow the clutch pedal to the firewall and you will see the small rod that goes into your clutch master cylinder,if you have a leak there the master cylinder is bad

Leak in hydraulic system if so equipped Low fluid level in system Air in system Bad slave cylinder Bad master cylinder Worn clutch disc and needs replacement - from inproper usage

User Avatar

If it is a stright stick, then the clutch is sliping. Need to replace clutch and pressure plate and turn fly-wheel. Replace throw out bearing If it is a automatic trans then it's burnt up. NEEDS REBUILT

User Avatar

A few things occure to me. Something's wrong with your clutch's hydraulic system. Out/low on fluid and needs to be bled. Possible bad slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder. Possible it just needs to be adjusted but most hydraulic clutches don't adjust so you'll have to check that out. Your clutch has gone out and needs to be replacesd.

User Avatar

There is no adjustment on your hydraulic clutch. Try pumping (quick stabs on the pedal with your foot) the clutch a few times and then push your clutch all the way in. If the clutch works better after pumping it, your slave cylinder is leaking and needs to be replaced. If there is no difference, you may need to bleed your hydraulic lines - if you have air in there, the air will compress unlike hydraulic fluid and your slave cylinder won't have the full range of motion.

User Avatar

Can mean a few things. Low hydraulic fluid( brake fluid) in clutch master cylinder, worn clutch disc, needs bleed, slave cylinder slowly losing seal, seals in master cylinder, linkage problem. It could go forever but it is probably just the clutch disk material. To sum it up it means take it to the shop because if you don't know what it could be you most likely don't know how to fix it and it will only get worse to the point where it will not move

User Avatar

when the clutch releases at the very top, that usually indicates that the clutch needs replacing. the clutch may just need adjustment. one more thing, the clutch on Chevy s-10's usually release high anyway.

User Avatar

has a hydraulic clutch should not need any adjusting. either needs bleeding or needs a clutch.
